Very good. Retains some strong traces of blue on the barrel with a mostly smoky gray patina. Clear markings in the metal, none present in the wood. Mechanically functional, good bore with strong rifling and moderate oxidation with some darkness and minor roughness. Stock with scattered bumps, dings and mars.
